The silos on Granville Island in Vancouver have received quite the revamp thanks to artistic brothers Os Gemeos. According to DesignBoom, "the Brazilian brotherly duo are renewing the industrial landmark, which is home of the ocean cement manufacturing and distribution plant, into an enormous public art work that spans 360-degrees of the 23-meter (75 foot) tall cylindrical forms."

Apparently this work is the largest one the Os Gemeos brothers have done so far, taking up a significant portion of the Granville Island area. The silos can be seen from quite far away creating a site for many Vancouverites in the area. Moreover the art institute of Emily Carr is nearby, which will hopefully inspire budding artists to learn and observe from these veteran individuals concerning how mundane objects can be completely transformed.
